If eyes are the window to the soul, then fingernails are the window to one’s personal grooming, and for all the attention we give our dogs’ appearance, we often lack the time to heed our own. Outside a dog show, everyone notices your hands, but inside a show ring, judges especially notice shoes and hands!
The challenge: Interpret the theme, Color My World, by showing how purebred dogs add color – figuratively or literally – to our world. Is it the variety of colors they come in? The colorful ribbons many of them have earned? Or how they see the world? Think outside the box with this one!
The prize: Color Street Nail Polish Strips, Four Sets, winner’s choice;
The Sponsor: Erin Altman, Independent Color Street Stylist;
